Public Scholarship and Research Impact

How can researchers demonstrate the value of their scholarly work to audiences both in and outside of academia?

Long room hub building, internal and external view

The Trinity Long Room Hub is committed to playing a leading role in connecting with a wider audience beyond academia, benefiting society and responding to the public’s interests and needs. The Institute’s impact mission is to foster public-facing scholarship and support Arts and Humanities research impact, helping our community and external stakeholders to address and engage with complex social challenges in a research-informed way. 

We are delighted to have hosted Trinity’s first research impact officer, Dr Giovanna Lima from 2020 to 2022, focused on the Arts and Humanities as part of a pilot with the Office of the Dean of Research to create a Research Impact Unit for the College.

Read the new Researcher Impact Framework (RIF), a new open-access tool developed by Dr Lima, and Sarah Bowman from the Office of the Dean of Research and lead of Trinity’s Research Impact Unit pilot.
